Hardly Strictly Bluegrass organizers have begun announcing the lineup for this year's free, three-day festival in Golden Gate Park. But as is usually the case, you can't find the performers' names all on a big poster just yet. The lineup is being announced through a series of song medleys, with the artist names and song titles unlabeled. The first medley of 10 songs went up this weekend; listen below. If you're really curious who's playing, skip to below, where -- spoiler alert! -- we've named nearly all the artists from this batch of songs.
Here are the songs and artists on HSB '13 lineup medley, no. 1, in order:
1. LP - "Into the Wild"
2. Bonnie Raitt - "Right Down the Line"
3. Pieta Brown - "Mercury"
4. Patty Griffin - "Don't Let Me Die in Florida"
5. Bettye LaVette - "I'm Not the One"
6. [Instrumental banjo song, title and artist unknown.]
7. Della Mae - "Turtle Dove"
8. Sallie Ford & the Sound Outside - "They Told Me"
9. Nicki Bluhm & the Gramblers - "Little Too Late"
10. Natalie Maines - "Take It on Faith"
Did we get it right? Did you figure out No. 6? Who are you excited to see at Hardly Strictly this year?
